The Last April Fool’s Joke That Actually Works

by ,

With each passing year, it becomes increasingly difficult to pull off an April Fool’s joke that people will actually believe. There still is one way to fool even the most skeptical prank target, however. Read about how technology is the final frontier for 2014 April Fool’s pranks and beyond.

Let’s face it — the April Fool’s joke is old. And rightly so: April Fool’s, while not an official or national holiday, is in our blood. Historians believe that the celebration of the day might date back as far as 1392, when the notion of April 1st as a day of pranking others is ambiguously referenced by English author Geoffrey Chaucer in his famous Canterbury Tales.

Considering that the April fool’s “holiday” may be older than 500 years, it’s no wonder that our cynical world has grown wary of anything too out of the ordinary that takes place on April 1st. The only possibility of really fooling someone on that day is if their busy and stressed enough to have forgotten the day altogether.

However, if you’re looking to pull off a lasting April Fool’s joke, it is still possible. Thanks to modern technology, you can weave a web of illusion that will be so plausible that even the most distrusting among us will believe it as true.

How Spoof Calling Can Fuel The Greatest April Fool’s Joke Ever

One of the reasons why it is so hard to pull off pranks is the advent of the caller I.D. Now that call recipients have advance word on who is calling them, it’s very difficult to portray yourself as someone or something that you are not. However, thanks to modern technology, it is now possible to fool caller I.D.s — and by doing so, open up a wealth of new pranking opportunities for April Fool’s Day.

Simply put, call spoofing allows you to change the telephone number that displays on a caller I.D., even if the call is made from a smartphone or landline that your April Fool’s target is familiar with. There are several different technologies that enable this illusion, however, the technology used at MyPhoneRobot is completely telephonic, meaning that the phone call that your target receives is not through the internet. It is a crisp, normal-sounding call like any other — only the telephone number is altered.

Call spoofing can become the basis for a limitless number of prank characters and locations, whether if be the bank, police station, fire house, brothel, or any other scenario that could place your “fool” in a compromising situation.

Prank Call on a Shemale Ad

prank call she male

I finally have a prime example of how prank calls can tend to spiral downwards into “I’ll call the cops”-ville if you don’t behave yourself, come off as a jerk and if you neglect to put a bit more substance in to your prank call character and act.

Here I feature another Maxmofoe prank call, wherein he calls the number on an ad for a shemale prostitute. Now, I assume this individual takes his/her job quite seriously and likes to keep things as dignified as his/her profession would allow, so I don’t really blame him/her for feeling harassed to the point of threatening to have the caller’s number traced by the cops.

Pranking The Prankster: How A Target Turns The Tables To Make A Truly Funny Call

by ,

Years ago, I was sitting the living room of a friend of mine when suddenly the phone rang. After the compulsory “Hello?” and “Yes?” my friend, who was obviously getting roped in to a sales pitch by a telemarketer. However, rather than tersely hanging up the phone, my friend turned a wry smile and broke into what he liked to call “a reverse prank call.”

“When you prank call someone, they can hang up on you,” he explained later on. “Telemarketers, though — they are being monitored my managers and are prohibited from hanging up, no matter how badly the call goes. So, you can just keep abusing them on and on, and they have to take it.”

It taught me very quickly how a truly funny call can simply be when the tables are turned on a phone prank.

by ,

When it comes to pulling off a successfully funny phone call, prank call voices are typically what keep the fun going.

Here are a few good tips for employing timelessly funny prank call voices in your next telephone gag:
